Doing our 30 Day Challenge? Click here for today’s post!
Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Niyamas into our day. Today is Tapas or discipline Day. Our intro Tapas day, we made a goal that was important to us. Our second day, we checked in on our progress. There are many recommendations on how to best instill a new habit, but the average opinion is this usually takes at least 30 days. If you started with us on a challenge in a past month and you have kept up on your daily habit, you have likely successfully formed a new habit! Congratulations, keep it up!! If you have not kept up, examine why you did not, and consider if you want to keep this goal or set a new one. Evaluate the electronic and visual reminders and/or rewards you set for yourself, and perhaps modify these systems to ensure your success!
It has been a little more than 11 months since our first Tapas Day for the year, and I would say I have successfully formed my new habit of daily Duolingo language practice… I just recently hit a 700+ day streak! You can follow my Duolingo @TarrynTyler I have moved on testing daily Asana and Meditation habits.
Yoga is a practice, and successfully changing our habits is about consistency, so we will keep checking in on our goals on Tapas Days.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to monitor our daily habit goals, and set a new one if needed. If you are having a hard time keeping up with the daily habits you have set for yourself, consider trying and sticking with a 30 Day Challenge! There are many free Apps for 30 Day Challenge workouts. My favorite is a free app called 30 Day Butt, which allows the pop-up phone notifications I love so much. We are in the middle of an Intro Challenge for November, which we will do again in January. We had a September daily Asana challenge, and a daily meditation challenge for October – these are great Daily Yoga Practices to integrate into your morning routine! If none of these resonate with you, please pick a habit that is meaningful to you to add to your life.
